The new prospectus will be available short- ly. The council of Agricultural Edu- cation has given its approval to the granting of two scholarships at the Dookie College to State school teach- ers from the Education Department's Training College, and these teachers will thus be able to complete their course for the degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture.
